A night at Dreams Gentlemen's Club turned into a nightmare for the bouncer on duty and another man, who were both shot by a customer early Sunday morning.
The Tampa Police Department on Wednesday released video of the suspect firing a gun at the bouncer, who was trying to break up a fight between the shooter and another customer, who also was shot.
The shooting took place at 12:24 a.m. Sunday at the club located at 4218 E. Seventh Ave.
The bouncer, 33, and the other victim, 28, were both shot in the back by the unidentified shooter, who fled the scene.
The suspect is described by authorities as a 5-foot-10 male with short hair and a thin build. He was wearing a blue short-sleeve shirt and long denim shorts. He ran from the scene and may have fled in a silver or gray sedan, possibly a Dodge Dart, police stated.
Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-873-TIPS.
